leave to remain

I just finished writing my official request letter for Leave to Remain in Ireland since I dont have a work permit. I will be sending the letter first thing next week to Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Services. I have requested a few letters of recommendation from friends because I am supposed to prove I am 'of good moral character' and not a shady cheater who's trying to mooch off the Irish State. Thanks Ian and Rachel for believing in me ha ha. Wish me luck folks!
New vocab:
"bin" = garbage can
"rubbish" = garbage/trash
"rubbish" = crappy, as in 'this band is rubbish'
